central ridge stack which apparently contains traces of mullioned windows in the
roof. The garden wall to the east contains an entrance flanked by ashlar gateposts
each with a moulded cornice and a ball finial. The base of the right-hand gatepost

the Civil War. Source: T D Whitaker, History and Antiquities of Craven (Skipton,
